Emmerdale's Zoe reopens new look shop

01 November 2017
Emmerdale star Zoe Henry was the VIP guest at our Yeadon shop when it opened with a brand new look.

Zoe, who plays vet Rhona Goskirk in the soap, is an ambassador for Martin House and was on hand to cut the ribbon to reopen the charity shop after a major refurbishment.

She said: “I’m delighted to open the shop today and support Martin House, and it’s wonderful to see such a bright, modern place, that brings a piece of the hospice into the community. I hope it is a huge success and that local people support it.”

The revamped shop features artwork created by Martin House artists-in-residence which also adorns the walls of the Boston Spa hospice, along with a shabby chic look.

Kathrine Gray, shop manager, said: “We’re so excited by the new look of the shop, it’s so fresh and modern, and we particularly love that we have artwork from Martin House here. Our volunteers all love how it looks now, and we hope our customers enjoy shopping here.”

Martin House has 11 shops and a furniture warehouse, and is always in need of donations and more volunteers. To find your nearest shop visit www.martinhouse.org.uk
